This is so exciting!
Dubai Safari celebrated its soft opening on Tuesday, 12 December where it was announced that the park will officially open in January 2018, just a few weeks from now.
However, until then, visitors are invited to visit the park, you guessed it, for free! This was announced by Hussain Nasser Lootah, director-general of Dubai Municipality, reports Gulf News.
An official opening date for the park will also be announced at the end of the month. “We have opened on a trial basis now. We hope to open officially after two weeks,” Lootah said.
Residents and tourists will be given free access to the park until then, where they can get up close and personal with lions, tigers and even crocodiles!
“Our vision for this project, which is more than just a wildlife park, is to offer a highly engaging edutainment experience that fosters education on animal welfare, inspires a sense of learning about wildlife diversity and raises awareness on what makes wildlife protection a top priority,” Lootah said.
When will you visit Dubai Safari, now for free, or when it opens officially next month?
